and then hurricane sandy happened. talk about him. >> he is one of the most popular republican governors in the country but a lot of republicans nationally a little annoyed at him for embracing president obama in the wake of hurricane sandy and for not campaigning with mitt romney in that final week of the presidential campaign. a big thing to look at to see how healthy the republican party is whether they embrace chris christie's brand of center right, reformist type republicanism or whether they criticize him and say he is not conservative enough for the party. the republicans need to have a big tent to compete in future elections and chris christie is one of the rising stars. a test of how big the party's tent is will be how much they connect back with kris tie in the future. >> third on the to-do list, encourage steve king to stay in the house. he is a republican congressman from iowa and a tea party favorite. why urge him to stay in the house? >> he is a long time congressman from iowa but not -- in the senate race in the state is up in 2014 and he is thinking about running. the pro
, joe. 11 days since sandy struck, and now new york city and surrounding areas are now having gas rations. every other day you can get gas depending on the last digit of your license plate. this is because of supply and distribution issues. the power is going back on in a lot of those gas stations, but these lines continue. just to give you an example in brooklyn where i live, at 2:00 a.m. when i come to work, it was still a two-hour-long line. people sitting there with gas cans waiting to get it. it's incredible that it continues now almost two weeks since sandy struck. gas rationing because of shortages in new york city. this morning temperatures continue to be very cold on the heels of that nor'easter. the snow is still on the ground. bundle up. windchills in the 20s in new england. even down to the 30s all the way down to washington, d.c. so this is it, though. we're going to start to warm it up in this region of the country. we desperately need it. it's been rough out there. it's going to be in the 50s today instead of the 40s. we should melt a lot of that snow. as we go thro

the devastated areas up in new york city from hurricane sandy. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. at some point in the many lives of a dollar it will be a dollar saved by somebody who switched to esurance. like, dollar karma. being online, esurance saves dollars that come back as more dollars for you. esurance. now backed by allstate. >>> let me finish tonight with this. tomorrow president obama goes to the storm-devastated parts of new york. my prediction is that he will be devastated himself by a tragedy that seems to grow worse, especially as the temperature drops towards december. again tonight, i'm going to ask you to take out a pen or a pencil and be ready. you might be able to help yourself with what the president sees tomorrow. i hope the president sees too the amazing network of people attempting to help the victims out there on staten island and brooklyn and the nastily hit parts of queens, like rockaway and breezy point. let's take rockaway, an area where nearly every family has a firefighter in the family, a police officer, sanitation worker, or some other public serv
from hurricane sandy that devastated a huge part of the state and the voters are noticing christie's favorability rating is now at 67%. up 15 points since the storm. you don't see that much in american politics. in a state dominated by democrats, a state the president won by 17 points. the message is clear, voters want action, not blind partisanship. here's what they are saying. do your job, find common ground, do it together. you would think other republicans would be getting the hint. but there's the problem. take a look at the republican so-called leaders who is in charge? who is in charge here? not marco rubio, not the rejected vp candidate paul ryan. bobby jindal is making noise lately but it's not hitch. mitch mcconnell is not it. his speaker john boehner is certainly not this charge. that leads to chris christie and rush limbaugh. the take charge governor who's getting from democrats versus the hard right radio show talk show host. how does this gop movie end? joining me now is melina, contributor to "the grio" and margie omaro. the gop has a real rush problem. how do you se
